Are Nuts on my Diet?Posted: Aug 05 in Nutrition, Weight Management Strategies by Dr. Lazarus
Tree nuts can be part of a weight management plan with evidence pointing towards definite benefits in weight maintenance.
PORTION CONTROL is essential. A fat “exchange”, equal to a pat of butter, with 45 to 50 calories consists of the following:
- Brazil Nuts–2
- Pecans–4 halves
- Pine Nuts–40
- Walnuts–4 halves
Healthy fat and nutrients are high in nuts, but the calories add up fast. Healthy eating isn’t about elimination. It’s moderation.
